A SECRET TREATY.
Between the Emperors of Russia
A and Japan.
New York, Sept. 9.—A dis-
patch to the World from London
revives the frequently and offici-
ally denied stories that a secret
treaty has been made between
the emperors of Russia and Jap-
"The intermediaries in the lie-j
1 gotiations," says the dispatch,
"were the minister at London
and the German ambassador at
"It provides that the emperor
of Russia—not the empire—shall
pay *500,000,000 indemnity to
Japan in five years, less the a
mount which Russia will pay
Japan for her care and the main-
tenance of Russian prisoners of
war—$100,000,000— as provided
' in the treaty at Portsmouth.
1 -i "It is reported, also, that Rus-
sia agrees in the treaty to give
Japan a free hand in China,
though this point not so certain
as the other. /
'The compact was made with-
out the knowlege even of Baron
\ Koinura or Mr. Witte."
Report of Sanitarium Physicians.
Sometime ago a man named
Unger, sent to the Sanitarium
for the iusane at Norman, made
charges oi maltreatment of in-
mates of the asylum by the at-
tendants. An investigation has
jiust been completed by Dr. E.
H. Cooke, of Thomas, H. P.
Hamilton, of Shawuee, and John
T. Warren, of Newkirk, Physi-
cians for the Oklahoma Sani-
tarium, and Atto,nu>y general P.
C. Simons, and their report to
the governor has just been made
public. The committee made an
impartial investigation and had
Mr. Unger examined touching
his knowledge of these affairs,
and report as follows:
"As the result of such investi-
gation we find that Mr. Brownlee
was only confined in the sani-
tarium about one month. That
when he came he was at times
very violent and insubordinate
under restraint. That he was
71 years old, but possessed of
much physical strength, and
when under the influence of an
attack of the malady with which
he was afflicted it was necessary
to restrain him. That 110 undue
physical means of violence were
resorted to for such purpose.
That he had been removed from
the sanitarium and was much im-
proved at the time he left. That
from our personal examination
of Mr. U. W. Unger and the other
information received about him,
weconsider any statements made
by him to be entirely unreliable.
He is man of very eccentric per-
sonality, and has had much
trouble in the courts over crimin-
al charges. He has a wife and
seven children at El Reno, but
his wife obtained a divorce, and
he was afterward sent to the
sanitarium. He was recently re-
leased on a writ of habeas corpus
sued out by another woman whom
he married a few hours after be
ing released, and with whom he
is now living. x
In the case of Willie Nelson,
we foiund him to be a very large,
robust man, 26 years old, weigh-
ing probably one hundred and
eighty pounds and very strong.
He is subject to epileptic fits,
and when under the iufluence of
an attack is very violent. We
had a long personal interview
with him, and found him to be a
very fair winded man. When
not suffering from an attack he
is very intelligent and docile, but
admitted to us that he was very
violent at times. He had little
complaint to make about his
general treatment. Relative to
the specific instance deferred to,
we are satisfied that at one time
he was treated with undue sever-
ity by two day attendants in
ward No. 4. who were brothers
and whose name was Bass. Nel-,
son had made an unprovoked as-
sult upon a fellow patient in the
same ward and struck him in
the face with his fist. Shortly '
after this the Bass brothers |
threw him down and treated him
roughly. Were they in the terr-
itory we would advise pro-
secution, but they were dis-
charged and have left the terri
tory. No serious injury was
done Nelson and he appears in
good health. He admits that it
is necessary to restrain him
when he is suffering from an at-
tack as he would do violence. He
makes 110 complaint about the
food and seems well satisfied
with it. We find that with the
exception above referred to, any
charges of ill treatment of Nelson
In the case of John T. Peteet,
we find that when he was receiv-
ed at the sanitarium he was a
young man, very violent and very
strong. That it was necessary
to restrain him physically, and
that no undue means were em-
ployed for such purpose. That
he was released much improved
and charge of ill treatment are
In securing the evidence of the
patients wo talked with them a-
lone and free from influence of
the managers or attendants at
the aaylujp.. We converged with
many of the inmates, made many
inquiries as to their treatment,
and as a rule they seem well sat-
We personally inspected the
kitchen, bakery and dining room,
and watched the inmates eating.
The food furnished appeared
wholesome and sufficient in quan.
The general health of the in
maths seems to be good. The
septic tank used for sewer pur-
poses has begun to leak and should
be immediately put in good con
dition or a new one constructed.
The fire escape facilities should
receive immediate attention, be
put into better condition for im-
mediate use and the inmates
trained in the use of the same.
In our judgment sufficient help
is not employed at the sanitar
ium. No attendant stays on duty
at nights in any ward. The day
attendants sleep in the wards at
night, and a night watch makes
the rounds every hour. A night
attendant should be awake and
on duty in each ward at night.
We consider the arrangement for
heating the wards unsuitable and
inadequate, and the danger from
tire great. This should receive
A matter to which we call es
pecial attention is to the facilities
for bathing the patients. Sever
al of the wards have no hot water
pipes, aud the hot water for bath-
ing purposes has to be carried
by hand, and in some instances
upstairs to wards full of patients.
We find that the patients largely
take cold water baths, and that
where warm is used it has been
the common practice to bathe as
high as six patients in the same
tub of water. This wo consider

small and insufficient, and the
